WASHINGTON - Georgetown put the tying run on third base with one out in the ninth inning, but No. 9 Louisville was able to prevent the tying run from crossing the plate as the Hoyas lost to the Cardinals, 2-1, in the opening game of a three-game series at Patterson Stadium in Louisville, Ky. Friday night.

The loss drops Georgetown's record to 23-16 overall and 5-8 in the BIG EAST, while the Cardinals improve to 31-10 overall and 9-4 in the league.

Georgetown had been stymied by UL starter Chad Green over the first eight innings and trailed by one run going into the final frame. Green was perfect through four-plus inning and retired 14-straight batters before giving up a pair of hits in the fifth inning.

That was all the Hoyas could muster until junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) lined a home run over the fence in right field to lead off the eighth inning cutting the lead in half

In the ninth, senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) hit a leadoff single and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's). An infield single from freshman designated hitter Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) put runners on the corners with one out, but Burdi struck out the final two batters of the game to close out the Louisville win.

The Cardinals had taken a 1-0 lead in the second on a solo home run from Coco Johnson. Georgetown starter Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) loaded the bases with two walks and a hit by pitch in the third, and then hit Johnson as the Cardinals lead grew to 2-0.

Sophomore Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) came on in relief to start the fourth and threw 3.2 innings of scoreless relief, allowing only one hit while walking three and striking out two batters. Senior Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) added 1.1 innings of scoreless relief as the Hoyas kept the game close.

After retiring the first 14 batters, Georgetown caught up to Green and put two runners on in the fifth - with singles from Anderson and freshman Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) - but he struck out the final batter to end the threat.

The series continues on Saturday, April 27 at 1 p.m.
